Om boka

Neonatal Neurology, Volume 162 in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology, series updates the reader on the latest advances in the study of neurological diseases diagnosed in the fetal and neonatal periods. With recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging, digital electroencephalography recording, and genetic testing and diagnosis, there is expanding awareness relating to early onset neurological conditions and how their early diagnosis can improve prediction of outcome and subsequent neurodevelopmental outcome. This new volume covers diagnosis and management of congenital conditions, including brain malformations, neuromuscular conditions and genetic epilepsies, as well as acquired injury related to peri-partum events, prematurity, critical illness and systemic diseases.

Om forfatteren

Linda de Vries is a neonatologist and pediatric neurologist, and obtained her PhD degree in Utrecht (1987). Since 1989, she has worked in the department of Neonatology in the University Medical Center Utrecht, where she is a professor in Neonatal Neurology. Her research focuses on prediction of neurodevelopmental outcome in high risk preterm and full-term newborns, using neurophysiology and neuro-imaging methods. These at risk children are also seen by her in the follow-up clinic until early childhood. She has a special interest in neonatal stroke and brain plasticity. Her work has been published in >400 publications. Dr. Hannah C. Glass is a pediatric neurologist, founding co-director of the Neurointensive Care Nursery (NICN), and Director of Neonatal Critical Care Services at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. She is also the program director of the Neonatal Neurology Fellowship Program. Dr. Glass specializes in brain focused care for children with neurological conditions diagnosed in the newborn period, including hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, stroke and seizures, as well as brain injury following preterm birth.

Dr. Glass joined the Division of Child Neurology at UCSF in 2006. She earned her medical degree at McGill University and completed pediatrics and child neurology training at the University of Calgary. She trained in neonatal neurology and earned a master's degree in clinical research at UCSF.

Dr. Glass has received funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), March of Dimes, Cerebral Palsy Alliance, and the Pediatric Epilepsy Research Foundation to conduct research that aims to improve developmental outcome following newborn brain injury.
